Facebook Event 

For Freedoms 50 State Initiative is an anti-partisan, national platform using art as a means for civic engagement, discourse and direct action. For Freedoms is inspired by Norman Rockwell’s 1943 paintings of the four universal freedoms articulated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1941—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. The CAM Club invites the community to participate by creating a lawn sign to articulate their own vision of freedom for public display outside the museum.

Symposium: Politics of the Portrait / Photography as Activism
USF School of Music Conference Center

Join us for a lively afternoon discussion of political and contemporary aesthetic considerations raised by the exhibition Miki Kratsman: People I Met. USF faculty members will be moderated by USFCAM curator-at-large Christian Viveros-Fauné.

  • PANELISTS:
  • Dr. Ulluminair Salim - Professor, USF Honors College
    Dr. Salim is a full-time faculty member in the Honors College and teaches courses that bring science and society into conversation. She explores questions of whose lives matter, whose bodies count, and who decides; traversing the interstices between scientific progress, capitalism, and social responsibility.
  • Dr. Steven Roach - Associate Professor of International Politics in the Department of Government and International Affairs, College of Art and Sciences
    Dr. Roach teaches courses on international human rights and international organization, global governance, nationalism and political inquiry. Dr. Roach’s research interests lie in the areas of international human rights, the intersection of politics and international law, critical international relations theory and global governance.
  • Wendy Babcox - Associate Professor of Photography, USF School of Art and Art History
    Babcox works primarily in photography and video. She has received two public art commissions and is a founding member of the 6+ Collective. Her solo and collaborative projects have been exhibited and performed nationally and internationally in such venues as the Bronx Museum, The Kitchen, and Exit Art in New York.
  • Noelle Mason - Associate Professor, Foundations Studio: Concepts and Practices, USF School of Art and Art History
    Mason is a trans-media artist who manipulates appropriated images, objects and contexts to investigate and expose the subtle seductiveness of power facilitated by systems of visual control. Mason is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, a Jerome Fellowship and the Illinois Art Council International Artist Grant.
  • Dr. Benjamin Young - Professor, USF Honors College
    Dr. Young’s primary research interests are in Ethics, Moral Psychology, Phenomenology, Philosophical Hermeneutics, and Interdisciplinary Pedagogy. Dr. Young's current work investigates the dynamics of perception, emotion, desire and normative moral intuitions in relation to social and ecological systems. Ultimately, he aims to contribute to our understanding of human flourishing with regards to the person, community and environment.
  • Jason Lazarus - Assistant Professor of Photography, USF School of Art and Art History
    Jason Lazarus is a conceptual artist whose research asks how we may understand and utilize increasingly broad definitions of photography in an expanded field, utilizing not only the camera but found and appropriated images, text-as-image, live archives, and public submission repositories. This expanded photographic practice seeks new methods of research, building knowledge and bearing witness.
  • MODERATOR:
  • Christian Viveros-Fauné - Curator-at-large for USF Contemporary Art Museum and 2018-19 Kennedy Family Visiting Scholar at the USF School of Art and Art History
    Viveros-Fauné was awarded Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Grant for arts writing in 2010, was named critic in residence at the Bronx Museum in 2011, and has been a lecturer at Yale University, Pratt University and Holland’s Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Currently he writes criticism for The Village Voice, ArtReview and Sotheby’s/Art Agency Partner´s in other words.
